You said you were a Christian.. that is more than a declaration of "BELIEVING" in God. Do you BELIEVE if you walk into your kitchen and sit down at your table that your chair will hold you. you probably don't weigh more than average, and your chair has always held you up, and you aren't aware to this point of any damage. so it can be said that you have FAITH and BELIEVE that chair will support you if you walked in there today. THAT IS NOT THE SAME FAITH AS "BELIEVING" IN GOD. that is natural faith.what the bible actually says is you are "GIVEN" faith. as well as wisdom, knowledge, and understand. NOT THE SAME AS FLESH, AND BODY KNOWLEDGE. it is not our normal process of logic, God's spirit interperates things to us... but that is when you seek. simply saying "i believe there is a GOD" IS NOT salvation. im not saying this to be negative. just to show you something that could really help out your journey in your faith.

BELING in God, is not believing there is "something" else that made us. that is part of it, but there IS more. way more. we are to believe, with the faith God gave us ( which the bible supports ) that Jesus was the "body" of himself. that God is soul and spirit, and made his body form manifested as Jesus Christ. Jesus had his own soul, which the best way to identify that is as him having his own "personality" the reason he was perfect, and the reason him and God are the same people, is instead of having his own spirit with his sould he had God's spirit. people, you... me... every human... is soul and spirit, the reason we are not perfect is because we have our very own spirit, but Jesus had God's. The way we are made perfect is in the IMAGE of Jesus Christ. with the indwelling of God's spirit in ours (the Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit) when Jesus died, he didnt just sacrafic his life and soul... he sacrificed the separation of himself with God's spirit. he gave that up for us... all of us. if you BELIEVE, with FAITH, then you KNOW. not because you have touched, tasted, physically seen or touched with your hand God himself. but he is recognizable to your spirit. ALL OF THIS IS BACKED BY THE BIBLE, AND IS NOT ANYYYY OF MY OPINION. it is very important for you to build your relationship with God further. its not BAD what you said, it is just VERY VERY incomplete. i've have said all of this because if you TRULY believe, than you believe enough to give you God the respect to at least try and find out. because he says, ALL THAT SEEK, SHALL RECEIVE. there is so much more to faith and believing, that hoping. Goodluck, and i'll pray you have the courage to seek whole heartedly!

excuse me sir, but let me tell you what the bible says. if you have faith in GOD and call your self a believer than i am allowed to talk to you about this matter. respectively.
unfortunately you are not living up to the same standard.. these people are saying they DO NOT BELIEVE. it is your just to WITNESS to them, not to bash them, or convince them with your pride of your logic, because the knoweledge of GOD, is given of God. you are not and can not posses it without him allowing you to have it.

you are telling these people they are going to hell. wether that is or is not the case, that is not your job. you BELIEVE in God, so you believe in the bible... well it says there are TWO TOP COMMANDMENTS. those are, love the Lord God with all your everything. the second... love thou neighbor as thyself... you will find that in mark 12:29-31
the bible also says.. it is easier to win over a city than a brother offended.
by what i've read, im offended for them. you are absolutely wrong in your process of witnessing.
and THAT is one of the single most reasons people default to science, or athiest because they see bad representation and example.
i am not perfect, they are not perfect, and buddy.. neither are you.
you need to worry about your relationship, and responsibility to God. you want them to believe, but you disobey. this is not JUDGING you, this is calling a believer as a believer on awareness. SIN, and sins carry different weight in society. but to the GOD of all, they are equal. so their "non-belief, and skeptic view" is equal to your "nasty, provoking, rudeness"
what you need to do is humble yourself, be respectful. it is your job as a follower if you find those that dont believe or dont know, it is your job to plant the seed. JESUS will sow the seed, JESUS will work in their life. YOU, ME, AND ANYONE AT ANY CHURCH YOU ATTENED CANNOT!!! SAVE ANYONE'S LIVE, INCLUDING!!!! YOUR OWN. JESUS, and only JESUS can.

so for those of you whose wrongly demeaning words he has used against i will apologize for him.there is a God, there is a proof, and there is power in His name. if you never choose to seek that is of your own choice, but the example this man has made, is not consistent to what the Lord expects and requires from us.

and sir, i would rather you not get offended and release a negative comment. you are, or at least claim to be a believer and i am not taking that from you or judging it. but i will ask you do not be defensive. go to OUR savior, our Lord and let him work in your life and through these things with you. he will. all you have to do is ask. belief is the first step, so your already there, keep it up, but don't turn others away by bad representation. you will have a part of the responsibility on judgement for aiding the devil in destroying the chance of salvation for them. even if that's not what you intended, that is what you have done.

i hope the best for all of you
most importantly, i hope you all one day know Jesus personally.

I believe in God. You know what makes me confused? People spell 'God''god' instead of the capital 'G','God' is a name, so why don't people capitalize it? Anywho, God IS real, believe it or not, everything around you proves it. If there is no God, then how did this earth begin? Every thing has a beginning. God has answered a lot of my prayers, it's NOT a 'cawinkydink' like some people call it. And sorry if my spelling isn't correct, I'm just not good at it.

Some people don't believe in God because they think they were an accident...nobody created them. Some say they don't believe in God because they hate their parents or society. Some just think it is stupid to have any sort of faith. Mainly is because they feel that they shouldn't have to answer to a higher power. God gave everyone Free Will to live their lives on Earth. We all just need to get along in this crazy planet we call Earth.

You'll have to answer to Wodan for your heresy.
Oh, wait...It's Osiris you'll have to answer to.
Wait...It's actually Angra Mainyuu.
Wait...Hades.

All these gods existed and were written about long before yours did. If anybody is running, it is you. We acknowledge the evidence that points against deities, we acknowledge the multitude of gods, all claiming to be the true ones.

Throughout human history chiefs and despots invented gods, usually in their own image, as a way of controlling and manipulating their ignorant followers.

Zeus, Ishtar, Mithras etc are out of fashion now but they are no better or worse the the current crop of gods that the clergy are using to defraud the ignorant faithful.

The universe is very real and visually spectacular, but I can’t quite place a personal god in it unless I use my imagination.

Actually, it will depend on where his ancestors came from. THOSE are the Gods he will have to face...

In that case, most people will have to answer to multiple gods because they have ancestors from multiple places. I know that my ancestry ties me to at least half of the countries in Europe.

That aside, the point of my post was to list multiple deities that have been worshiped other than the Judeo-Christian "God."

What the religious don't understand is that god did not transmit their beliefs into their brains. If they would think for just a second they would realize that their beliefs are the result of cultural transmission and propagation. So if the transmission isn't received or it doesn't "take", no belief in god.
